It seems like such a cliche to start off the new year on a health kick and a commitment to numerous resolutions that never last beyond the end of January, but that is exactly what I’ve done. There are some people that don’t believe in resolutions when they want to make a change; they make a change, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is.
For me, January is a time to make a clean break and focus on making some changes. It seems like 2017 was one false start after another, trying to make changes but failing at the first hurdle.
My main focus for this year is to lose weight, I currently weigh more than I have ever weighed in my entire life, and that’s fucking scary.
Christmas was one long binge of food and drink, basically two whole weeks of shameless overindulgence.I was so worried about seeing my extended family over Christmas; I was worried that some less tactful family members would mention my weight gain (as per the year before when I told that I’d “plonked weight on”.
